Default Cardinals @ Braves Play-In WC Game Thread

Kind of looking forward to these, even if I completely disagree with the concept. Should be lots of excitement today.

Getting sick of the seeing Cardinals in the playoffs now. Go Braves.

Records be damned, when you play the Cardinals, they're the 1 seed and have a 10 run lead. I continue to be jealous.

What a terrible call.

Classy move, Braves fans. What are you, Cubs fans?

This is insane. That's a flyball to left field. What the heck.

What is the guy cleaning up the trash doing? He's picking things up and tossing them 2 feet over. That's going to take a long time to clean up with that technique.

Pathetic call. How you liking your dumb play-in game now, Bud?

Braves got robbed badly. Really makes you wonder if it's worth it to bring in extra umps for the playoffs anymore. They've made some bad calls the last few postseasons.

Braves fans' years of frustration has manifested itself through their behavior.

Getting slighted by the media in favor of the Bulldogs or Falcons. So many playoff appearances, but only 1 WS title. Last year's collapse leading to these Cardinals getting in. Having the best record this season among non-division winners, only to now have to play these pesky Cardinals for a DS spot which they would have had in any prior year. And now for the 2nd year in a row, the Cards steal their spot. Ouch.

Lightning struck twice. Now will it for the Rangers, who were 1 strike away twice last year, only to lose? Will Texas collapse 2 years in a row?

I think this proves the 1 game play in is a terrible idea. Braves deserve a shot in a 5 games series.

Even worse if I heard correctly, the Nationals have to open IN St Louis? The best team in the majors all year has to open on the road??? Wow, they need to get this fixed asap.

And that stupid format was all because the TV networks didn't want to change their schedules which they had already set 7 months in advance or something. I didn't quite understand that, but it had something to do with when each series would have their travel days.

So instead of waiting a year and making it work right, they just went with it and let it be dictated by TV.
